Gemma Claxon recently wrote in Farmers Weekly how target-treating grass like an arable crop with compound fertiliser could lead to significant feed and fertiliser savings and also boost grass production in the process.
The piece goes on to detail how many farmers are not yet unlocking the genetic potential of modern grass varieties, and yet doing so could well lead to high-quality yields, something that equates to nearly twice the UK average.
According the Farmers Weekly, Yara Grass Prix is a challenge set to beef and dairy farmers to achieve the highest energy yields from grass. Yara area Manager Nigel Hester is encouraging farmers to treat their grass more like arable crops, firstly by having their soil analysed. As multi-cut grass requires a good supply of nitrogen, sulphur and potash, potash in particular is not sufficiently replaced. Tailored fertilizer usage matching crops needs throughout the growing season allows for a more efficient approach and better nutrition.
Farmers administering fertilizer can benefit from bulk buying this ever price-fluctuating medium with the usage of dedicated liquid fertiliser tanks, available in capacities up to 25,000 litres. Enduramaxx liquid fertiliser tanks are made from a single piece of rotationally moulded UV-stabilised polyethylene, so the precious contents are safe from wastage and spillage, and are also protected from the elements.
Endramaxx also provides a range of cone bottom tanks and molasses tanks, along with plastic water tanks and rainwater tanks. To find out more about storing any form of liquid, get in touch and Enduramaxx will match your needs to the most suitable vertical or horizontal tank solution.
